Default RE: Anyone flying the OMP Variable pitch unit yet?

John,
Did you ever order the HL one? I flew mine some more this past week(IKARUS VPP). I changed my blade holders around as they where on wrong as stated in the above post. I had my negative set up pretty well. It would stop and actually back up. I had some problems on the positive pitch side. I barely had enough positive to go vertical. I was playing with my pitch servo throws until it vibrated so bad at positive pitch it destroyed the front of the airplane. The only thing on the VPP set-up that broke was the pitch rod bent. I ended up repairing the plane and put the S2 on there with out the VPP unit. I have a 9x4.7 on it with a Thunder Power 2 cell 730 battery pack. This little motor is pretty good. Just a little less power then my AXI 2208/34, but this plane does weigh an ounce lighter then when the axi was on there.
